The Department of Art provides curricular opportunities for the developmnt of technical skills, aesthetic judgment, and historical understanding. Participation in both studio and art history courses stimulates critical thinking and refines creative potential in the visual arts. The major and appropriate supporting coursework can prepare students for graduate study and a variety of careers, whether in museums, art conservation and restoration, arts management, art law, architecture and urban planning, or as professional artists and art historians involved in teaching. The Permanent Collection of original works of art, especially works on paper in the Print and Drawing Study Room, and changing exhibitions in the Faulconer Gallery, provide direct study and research opportunities in many courses.
